US trade experts can convince themselves at NPE
Over the last years, Mahlo has established itself as a valued player in the American plastics and rubber market. At the NPE trade fair in Orlando, held from 7 to 11 Mai, industry experts can get an overview of the German machine manufacturer’s broad portfolio for quality control technology. The proficient team of Mahlo America Inc. will be happy to advice. At booth W 71 91, the latest Version of Scanner WebPro XS makes its trade fair debut.

The traversing frame of Quality measurement system Qualiscan QMS is characterized by its rugged and compact design. It is used for many applications on running web – even if space is restricted. The WebPro XS accomplishes product widths from 0, 2 to 2 meters and can host one Mahlo-sensor, which determines important parameters such as layer thickness, moisture or basis weight.

The methods used here are quite diverse. The coating thickness of almost all materials can be calculated with beta, infrared or X-rays, which penetrate the product or are reflected by it. Mahlo has developed a process for thin film utilising white light interference. For these special scenarios, for example when the surface is structured, coarse, very smooth or shiny, Mahlo has developed a special sensor with the Calipro DMS, which acts largely independently of the material finish.

Choosing from this broad range of products, plastic producers can get an individual system designed that fits exactly their demands. If they then have the data of their production line, they know where there is a need for optimization and can react. That saves not only raw material and thereby costs but also enhances the product quality.

Fewer visitors, more interest – KARL MAYER is satisfied with Saigon Tex, held 11.-14.04.2018 in Ho Chi Minh City

Less is more

SaigonTex ended on 14 April 2018 after four days, and most of the participants recorded a successful fair. Roughly 900 exhibitors from 27 countries came to this leading trade fair for the textile and clothing industry in Vietnam, among them the KARL MAYER Group. This leading textile machinery producer, with its headquarters in Obertshausen, was presenting its innovative technical solutions for warp knitting and warp preparation on the stand of its regional agent, ILLIES ENGINEERING VIETNAM, who described its visitors as “small but fine.” “It is true that there were fewer visitors and exhibitors than last year, but we detected an encouraging increase in the quality of the conversations and enquiries,” says Christoph Peters of ILLIES ENGINEERING VIETNAM. This director recognised many well-known faces among the visitors he spoke to, and also met interested people who made enquiries about projects in Vietnam.

The visitors came mainly from the host country, as well as Korea, Italy, Turkey and Taiwan. Once again, SaigonTex turned out to be a useful platform for international customers planning to expand in Vietnam. Constant foreign investment by well-known textile companies is promoting the continuing excellent investment climate in Vietnam. In addition to efficient machines, qualified workers are needed to exploit the growth potential of this country. The interest of the visitors in KARL MAYER’s workshop held in the service centre of ILLIES Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City was, therefore, extremely high. Here, customers’ machine operatives can attend a one-week training course on warp knitting machines. At the fair, Christoph Peters took a number of firm bookings for the course.

Members of the exhibition team specialising in warp preparation were also pleased with the number of positive enquiries and conversations they had. These mainly focused on KARL MAYER’s machines for use in denim production and for sizing in the manufacture of terry fabrics and shirtings.

Greatly demanded fabrics and machines – KARL MAYER’s stand at ITM 2018 in Istanbul

Getting close to the Turkish market

Turkey is one of KARL MAYER’s most important markets; accordingly well prepared was the company when travelling to the country’s leading trade fair in the field, the ITM. From 14. to 17. April 2018, the world market leader presented itself in Istanbul on a newly designed booth and with contributions that met the market demand precisely and completely. No trend was forgotten. So, the machines and technology presentations for the denim warp preparation sector and for the HKS machine range were just as densely surrounded as the decoration islands for displaying selected textile developments for different applications. „Especially the terry topic attracted the customers‘ attention“, said Oliver Mathews, the Sales Director of KARL MAYER’s Business Unit Warp Knitting. But also the stylish articles for the fashion sector were on everyone’s lips, and hands. „The visitors looked at the various garments, they reached for the fabrics, touched and examined them“, explained Gabriela Schellner, Head of Textile Product Development. She was happy about the success of her fabric experience concept. She was, like the entire exhibition team, constantly in demand. Nearly 250 qualified discussions were conducted at the KARL MAYER exhibition stand, with customers from all over the world, but mainly from the host country and from Iran.

The conversations showed a very good mood within the line of business: „The willingness to invest among our existing customers is high“, said Bastian Fritsch, Senior Sales Manager of KARL MAYER’s Business Unit Warp Knitting. He met all his customers, and usually had intensive discussions about specific projects, with legitimate hopes for contract conclusions.




A single machine for performing all the finishing operations on the garment: this is the path that we have chosen to tangibly respond to the market’s most sophisticated demands, with an approach oriented towards sustainability and transparency. And, of course, flexibility. Because the “system” has been created specifically in order to adapt to the most diverse necessities.

Tonello All-in-one system

Our all-in-one system has become a reality with the arrival of ECOfree 2 being added to the already proven NoStone®Core, and Up.

The system saves energy, reducing water and chemical consumption, cutting down processing times and total production costs: respecting the environment, reducing manual labor and protecting the health of operators.



  • ECOfree 2 is the latest washing technology using ozone in the water and ozone in the air, the definitive treatment. Three systems in one, to guarantee the best performance on the garment, fewer manual operations and a huge reduction in water and chemical consumption. With ECOfree 2 the unstoppable finishing revolution continues.
  • NoStone®, developed in collaboration with Levi Strauss and first prize winner at ITMA 2015, allows obtaining a stone-washed effect without using pumice stone (and therefore without pumice’s disadvantages, both economic and environmental). Other pluses include reduced manual labor and increased safety, as well as less water needed for purification and no more sludge to dispose of.
  • UP optimizes garment washing, reducing the bath ratio (LR 2: 1) to levels never seen before. It also drastically reduces energy consumption, reducing processing times and costs.
  • Finally, Core, which permits creating effects and applying products to garments, increasing performance and reducing water consumption by up to 96%. Impressive savings in product use and shorter processing times are the other benefits.
